    What's the ethnic makeup of your MA class? What I mean is, what percentage of your students / classmates are of the same ethnic background as your MA. For example, if your a kali/arnis/escrima student, how many of your classmates are Filipino or part Filipino. If you're a TKD student, how many in your class / school are Korean and part Korean.

    My aikido class has has a few Japanese expats and visitors over. I've heard that our local Kendo club has a lot of Japanese from the Japanese school in the city. Kali of course is all filipino.

    My aikido class - all white apart from one 2nd generation indian kid who occasionally turns up.
    Sun Taiji - all white
    Wu Taiji - all white
    Escrima - all white apart from same indian kid (see above)
    Lau Gar - all white

    Martial arts is pretty much a white middle class thing around the northwest (UK) though I know several very working class practitioners.
    I know that the central manchester clubs have a more diverse ethnic mix, but that reflects more on the population than anything else.

    we're about two thirds white, one third mexican.

    Oddly enough, the only local kung fu school where I see many chinese is not a fighting school, though they don't claim to be. Many chinese do not want their children to be kung fu thugs.

    JKD -- Caucasian 90 percent. Maybe 3 or four Asians (Chinese and Filipino). Some Middle Eastern guys. Not an ethnically diverse area.

    BJJ -- mixed Caucasian and Middle Eastern.

    TKD-all white
    Judo-all white

    Might be because I live in Kentucky, we're as diverse as we were 100 years ago.

    I was going to say my BJJ class has a huge diversity.

    Like a ton of middle easterners, and then it has alot of Hispanics not sure on their exact country, maybe Puerto Rico.

    Then there are a few whites, and there is 1 young asian wrestler then there is like 4 blacks.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.
